VIDALIA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The City of Vidalia plans to offer public wireless Internet at the city municipal complex and on the Mississippi River front next year.

The Telecommunications Development Fund Foundation awarded the city a $30,000 grant, announced last week, to deploy a wireless network.

The network will cover the 77 acres that comprise the Vidalia municipal complex, including City Hall, police and fire stations and the recreational fields used by Concordia Recreation District No. 3.

Mayor Hyram Copeland said the grant was received in part because of work by Sen. Mary Landrieu. Landrieu said the Wi-Fi project complements Vidalia's work to build a technology center and install high-speed fiber optic Internet access throughout the city.
